Thanks for the comments and for the ribbon. It is always a buzz getting one of these virtual ribbons, still after all these years :)

Maybe you should have your monitor calibration device checked! On my "calibrated" monitor I am seeing a refreshing olive colored skin tone here :)

I love where the eyes are in the composition. Perfectly cropped, IMO.

Truly cool picture, i like this very much. The purple, rose and red go good together with the blue -9-
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 11:46:31 PM
I adore the colour scheme here and her eye make-up is awesome, beautiful model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 11:29:01 PM
I think the crop is very awkward, both the crop at the top of her head and missing the one shoulder. The lighting is great. The angle of the camer is not flattering for her though, since it is an "up your nose" shot and also puts too much emphasis on her ear. She also appears to be a bit of a sickly green/yellow on my calibrated monitor.

Great lighting and model.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 11:04:57 PM
Great expression and composition. The lighting is perfect. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 10:52:01 PM
I think this is a decent photo. I am not perfectly fond of the crop or the tones, but I gave it a 7.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 09:18:59 PM
One of my favorites in this challenge. I truly expect this image to be in the "Top Ten".
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 08:23:46 PM
This is beautiful. I especially like the color of the background. This would not look out of place to me in any "upscale" magazine.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 03:28:40 PM
Oh my, this is beautiful. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/05/2008 01:12:48 PM
Absolutely beautiful! 10 from me, and my choice for the winner!

I was voting very low until now. DPC has dropped like a stone from a skyscraper when you talk about quality. Finally something to give more than a 6.

A lot of care obviously went into this very nice portrait. I love the colors, the gradient-colored bg, the expression and the feathers. Very nicely presented and perfectly exposed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

That is exquisite, and probably my only 10 for this challenge.

I love the portrait of the girl, but find the feather on her neck less than esthetic
